Gaudi House Museum: Tours & Tickets
Gaudi House Museum Barcelona: Top 5 highlights
The Gaudi House Museum was the home of the genius himself for two decades in his wonderland Park Güell of Barcelona, Spain. Today it showcases Antoni Gaudi’s unique sense of wonder in nature with his designed objects and furniture.
1. The Furniture
Like the natural world he was inspired by, nothing about Gaudi’s furniture is ridged or symmetrical. The modernist pieces look as if sculpted from soft clay and no two are alike.
2. Gaudi’s Work Desk
It is strangely humbling to see where the genius himself drafted Sagrada Famila. You may just leave inspired for greatness at your desk!
3. The Death Mask
Gaudi's assistant Matamala was instructed to make this molding of Gaudi upon his death. When the cast was pulled, his eyelid stuck to it as if he was winking at his friend.
4. Gaudi’s Bedroom
It’s deeply humanizing to see where Gaudi laid his head to rest each night—little details left unchanged, like his prayer books, make visiting even more personal.
5. Parc Guell
The house is located in one of his masterpieces, Park Guell. Entry is free, so it is usually quite crowded; come at a off-peak time to find a place to relax.
Planning Your Visit
Gaudi House Museum “worth it”?
Many wonder if it's worth it to pay an entry fee to experience such a small museum. With a convenient location, after exploring the park it sits in all afternoon, this humble abode may seem a little underwhelming. At a 5,50€ entrance price, the museum is suited for the sentimentalist that wants a personal look into who the artist was and what his life looked like.
Visiting Parc Guell is an absolute must for Barcelona, so you can be spontaneous about visiting the museum—tickets at the door won’t be a problem.

What people are saying about Gaudi House Museum
so glad we purchased these before going! the queue for tickets on the day was massive and by the time we got there (12.30pm) the next entry time was at 3.30pm but we were able to walk straight in! Definitely worthwhile purchasing if you want to make the most of the day
Buying tickets on line saved us time that we’d have wasted staying in a line. Once you see Sagrada Familia walking in Guell Park is a must to understand the beauty of Gaudi’s vision.
The park is fantastic and defo worth a visit . It was especially great later in the day with the sun being lower in the sky we got some beautiful photos . This place is very special
Easy journey to the park from metro. Enjoyed walking in and outside the park which has good views over the city. Cafe was awful. Bad service and bad coffee.
We went early morning, the views are spectacular and the park is incredible. Wear walking shoes and pack a picnic you will want to stay for a while.
